A big year for UAL
2022 was a big year for UAL – join us in looking back on some of our achievements, improvements and initiatives across the whole University.
We’re still growing and developing and learning – there’s so much more to come.
We launched our 10-year strategy for 2022-2032 which has 3 guiding policies.
Our Climate Action Plan committed to adapting the way we:
- Work together.
We continued our commitment to anti-racism and improving diversity in the creative industries.
Creative Shift. Decolonising Arts Institute. Black History Month. Ethnic Representation Index. And more.
We also introduced our sector-leading Equal Parent Leave policy.
The AKO Storytelling Institute was created to lead change.
Last summer, we welcomed back in-person shows and continued to share work online on our Graduate Showcase.
We also got to celebrate our graduations in person.
We ranked highly across the board. We became a Guardian top 20 university. Moved up 5 places in the Complete University Guide 2023. And ranked 5th in sustainability. We ranked 1st for specialist art and design research. LCF and CSM both rated in top 3 fashion schools in the world.
And we’re still growing online and in person.
